Let's get Japanese: nagano and apples

Hope it's not yet too late for my pixelbug weekend sharings...

Last week we went out of town together with my mom's Parents In Law whom we call Okasan (literally means mother), and Ojisan (grandfather). They're old but very much healthy (and not mention young at heart lol). So happy and thankful because they invited us to join them on a trip to Nagano, which is a 3 hour drive away from Tokyo. I was worried at first because that would be Anzu's longest drive (without a childseat) but thank God, she endured it without having a fussy phase. We had few stopovers of course.

Anyway, Im really really thankful not because it was an all expense paid, but it was a wonderful experience for me and my dolly. We stayed in a Japanese Ryokan where in you experience the elements of Japanese culture and customs: living in a room with Tatami (straw mat) flooring, changing into a typical Yukata (robe) after taking an Onsen hot-spring bath, sleeping on a Futon (bedding) put down directly on the Tatami floor, and etc. It's a traditional Japanese hotel. Our rooms are decorated in Japanese style. Each room is equipped with a hot spring bathroom. It's really quite a great experience especially for foreigners (like me lol)

We also had a full course Japanese dinner and breakfast which was really terrific, the prentation and the food itself.

havent really took a lot of food photos bec i was shy

And the best of all, me and lil Anzu had our first Apple Picking experience... I never knew that they are lots of kinds.. Havent seen apple trees in my whole life lol and now Ive been to few fields of apples.

I realized that it's also fun being with the oldies. You learn a lot and you become more sensible conversationalist lol.
